eTradeWire News/10524455
GRAVETTE, Ark. - eTradeWire -- The annual Home Improvement Dream Giveaway, a nationwide drawing sponsored by New Beginning Children's Homes, ended on April 30, 2019. Steve Smith from Florida is the grand-prize winner. He was awarded a $10,000 gift card to The Home Depot!

Mr. Smith has been making donations to enter the Dream Giveaway sweepstakes since 2010. His continued generosity proved yet again that good things happen to good people. On January 22, 2019, Mr. Smith split a donation between the Corvette Dream Giveaway and the Home Improvement Dream Giveaway. That strategy proved to be a good one. "My son, who was actually with me when I got the call, is the marketing executive for the Indiana Army National Guard. Out of all the charities my donation helped, the charity that is most important to me is the National Guard Educational Foundation."

On Thursday, May 16, 2019, he received the news via telephone that he had won the Home Improvement  Dream Giveaway. "When I got the call it was awesome," he said. "My son and I had actually just left The Home Depot when I got the call. When we walked into The Home Depot, I saw a penny, picked it up, and told my son. 'This is our lucky day!' So sure enough it was our lucky day. When I told my wife she didn't think it was real at first but when I got home she had already sent me a list. My wife has all kinds of ideas. We will enjoy doing the planning and shopping."
